DFS Picks for the 2020 US Open – Setting Your Lineup For Winged Foot

DFS Picks for the 2020 US Open

There has never been a better time to hop in some golf GPPs on DraftKings. You got the Milly maker on deck, and you got the $10 Empire State Special that’s shelling out $250k to first.

Frankly, it’s hard to keep track of how many other tournaments on DK are offering a minimum of $50k for first this week at Winged Foot.

Those dying to get in on the action, check out my US Open DFS picks.

Webb Simpson – $9,700

Leading the tour in birdie average and bogey avoidance are a couple of the main reasons why I picked Simpson to win this week. And I knew Paul Tesori’s man won the Vardon Trophy thanks to his PGA Tour leading scoring average, but get this:

Webb led the PGA Tour in front-nine scoring average and back-nine scoring average in 2019-20.

In other words, $9,700 is a sweet discount for Webby. Do yourself a favor and plug him into your US Open DFS lineup.

Daniel Berger – $9,200

Daniel Berger has been on an absolute tear. Surging to #13 in the Official World Golf Ranking, all facets of his game have stood out during the restart.

Berger’s been striping in irons, he’s been holing plenty of mid-range putts, and he can rely on his low bleeder off the tee to find tons of fairways at Winged Foot.

If you’re looking for a steady player to help anchor your lineup, know that Berger has racked up nine top-15s across his last 11 starts alone.

Tommy Fleetwood – $8,900

A closing bogey-free 64 at the Portugal Masters (T-3rd) might be just the momentum Tommy Fleetwood needed to make a run at the US Open. The decision to play across the pond last week may have baffled some, but it appears that Tommy found something in his swing that was well worth the trip.

He’s cheaper than Finau ($9,100) or Matsuyama ($9,000), but in my opinion, is the far superior play of the trio. You simply must play from the fairway in order to score at this venue.

Viktor Hovland – $8,000

One of the US Open sleepers bound to make some noise in Mamaroneck, Viktor Hovland makes a lot of sense in DFS as well. Looking to build off of a stellar rookie campaign, this former USGA champ (2018 US Amateur) possesses incredible prowess off the tee. And as good as he drives it, his iron play is the strength of his game (7th in SG: Approach-the-Green). 

On top of being armed with a potent golf swing, Viktor can also fall back on prior success at this championship. Hovland finished 12th at the 2019 US Open as an amateur.

Matthew Wolff – $7,700

Over to Hovland’s former teammate in Stillwater, I can’t help myself laying off Matthew Wolff at just $7,700.

He’s too good, too fierce, and too confident in his own abilities.

Bludgeoning drivers over corners and sending iron shots straight into the sky, Wolff’s arsenal is strapped with a full set of tools that most can’t even dream about. 69-68-68-65 en route to tying for 4th at the PGA Championship hints at what he’s capable of.

Joel Dahmen – $6,400

This isn’t your standard punt like you’d expect tossing a “$6,400 player” into your lineup at a major. This is an exquisite ball-striker who finished 10th at Harding Park and a guy who could very easily hang another top-10 at Winged Foot.

Those who are scrambling trying to round out their roster, here’s a good rule of thumb to follow.

Target golfers who excel off the tee and ones who are dependable with their irons.

In this price range, you won’t find any better than Joel Dahmen.

My 2020 US Open DFS Lineup for GPPs

Webb Simpson$9,700
Daniel Berger$9,200
Tommy Fleetwood$8,900
Viktor Hovland$8,000
Mathew Wolff$7,700
Joel Dahmen$6,400

Other names I fancy playing well at Winged Foot include Xander Schauffele ($10,100) and Adam Scott ($8,700). Xander’s popularity is likely to be through the roof, and I preferred Fleetwood over Scott, slightly.

Truthfully, Dahmen is the only guy I’m comfortable rostering under $7k, especially considering how important it is to get six of six golfers through to the weekend.
